(After watching the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)
Leafy: "Mama, the Witch looks just like you, except she doesn't wear glasses and she wears a white dress and her skin is cleaner than that skin." (Points at my face.)
YaYa: "No Leafy, those are just freckles, the Witch doesn't have any freckles."
Me: "I think the word you're looking for is 'whiter.' Whiter skin, not cleaner. Thanks, though... I think."
In my house I'm famous for looking like the White Witch, the evil Queen Jadis. This is not the first time it's been brought up. When Leafy was small, we were flipping channels and went past the first scene with her and Edmund, and Leafy called out, "Mama!" while pointing at the TV.
Sheesh. Though I do love Tilda Swinton. And her hair in the movie is pretty fabulous (wish I had a dread stylist to sculpt my hair) so maybe it is a compliment.
But then I just read in an interview that she was going for the look of a white supremacist, since most villainous characters are portrayed as dark and that is terrible. (Truly terrible.) So does that mean that I look like a supremacist? I sincerely hope not. There are those freckles of mine that might save the day. And since when do supremacists have dreadlocks?
Oh dear, rambling. About an old movie, no less. Is Voyage of the Dawntreader out yet? Has anyone seen it?
